Aluminium style supplied by Sparks ?? I think has long ceased but you can get resin type off the bay of fleas.Quality isn't great though as they require some fettling to get the body to fit and move smoothly along with the need to re-tap the threaded end.

If using resin stylee, a good lubrication with silicone spray helps,and silicone grease.

I found their website here and ordered with PayPal. The adjusters are listed on the left below the BMW bits. Haven't had an acknowledgement yet, but it is the weekend.

Phoned today and discovered that the person who made the up sadly passed away a couple of years back.  :'(

The chap I spoke to said he'd passed the drawings on to someone in Norway(?).

Anyway, I'm back to square one. Will cancel the PayPal as the person I spoke to cannot access the account.

All seems a frightful hassle and I think it may be worth my while just getting new headlights. Time is money as they say.

Anyone reckon these would be any good? ???

PM  & ask Serek about the adjusters. . .  he may some "resin" type ones . I seem to recall he was getting supplied from Poland  with these  :-\   worth a try rather than buying new headlights ;)

I did PM Serek before trying to order the aluminium ones, but I had no reply.
